  • Small ocher-colored houses face onto narrow streets and small shops and artisans. Beautiful antique doors. Shame about the incessant passage of motorcycles and cars.

  • We arrived on a feast day - everywhere thronged with Iranian tourists all in great form. Despite the crowds, it was still possible to get around the sights and enjoy the old city  more »
  • Yazd was for us a significant experiment independently to its major points of interest, but because of the historical center of the city itself. It really seems to be catapulted back in time, with a centre that has retained its charm of yesteryear. Really worth losing yourself strolling through the narrow streets and maybe encountering glimpses or really savoured niches they deserve with the right calmness. I could tell definitely much more, but definitely live it will surely be the best choice! :-)
